‘Anonymous’ Hackers Claim Responsibility for Crashing Atlanta Police Dept. Website


The hacker group Anonymous has claimed responsibility for taking down the website of the Atlanta Police Department in the wake of the killing of Rayshard Brooks.

Atlanta media report that the department’s website went offline for three hours on Sunday morning, local time, but was later recovered.

It appears to be unavailable again, as of 1:00 a.m. on Monday.

Anonymous, who have organised cyberattacks on the police in the past, said they targeted the website in retaliation for Rayshard Brooks, a 27-year-old black man who was fatally shot on Friday during an encounter with two white Atlanta police officers, Garrett Rolfe and Devin Brosnan. The hacker group has also demanded that the two cops be arrested.
